TV Alert - Cartoon Network

Wednesday, August 28, 2002 10:11 AM

This will be of special interest to anyone over the age of 30 [or anyone who also remembers Laugh-In]. Cartoon Network now has a program called "Boomerang" in which they repeat kids shows from the late 50's thru the mid 70's.

Today at 5pm and 1am they are showing an episode of "Banana Splits." While the actual program content now seems pretty lame, the credits [especially the end] do have some pretty cool footage of a very early Six Flags over Texas and the soon-to-be-history Coney Island in Cincinnati.

Enjoy ;-)

Since it's "on topic", time for a not-so-shameless plug...and it's not even for PPG. Watch Adult Swim on cartoon network...http://www.adultswim.com

Of particular interest are: Home Movies, Baby Blues, Space Ghost Coast to Coast (with WAY funny interviews), and my new fav, Aqua Teen Hunger Force...Meatwad is "da bomb"....:)

I see the usual suspects are chiming in...

Gator - I love Adult Swim!

Jeff - you have a kid, you're not allowed to think dirty anymore ;-)

chris - is it just me or was 'Banana Splits' created by someone on acid?

I'll throw this one out to everyone - not to brag, but I'm related to the Witchiepoo [well, the actress who portrayed her at least].

Moosh[iepoo?]

It is so funny how many blank stares I get when I mention the "Banana Splits" show. I had always assumed that the park shots were PKI as they all looked like the same things from the Brady Bunch episode at PKI. Oh well. Moosh would know better than I and my frail memory :) Now I gotta get out of work early today to catch the opening and closing sequences :)

Adult swim is awesome. I also love The Oblongs and Mission Hill.

Anyone played Super Mario Sunshine yet? I heard there is an amusement park level in that game.

Kick-the-Sky - believe me I didn't figure out the park footage from memory and to be honest I'd always assumed if was PKI, too, for the very same reason [damn you, Mike Brady!].

Cricket - SFOT and Coney are the only parks listed in the end credits.

As long as we're reminiscing, anyone remember Martha Raye on "The Bugaloos" ???

5 p.m. today? I just looked at the program guide and it doesn't show the show is on. Not 5 or 1. Also Boomerang has been on awhile, and there is a boomerang station now that specialises in the old cartoons.

Glad to know I'm not to the only one old enough (if 29 is old) to remember growing up watching Banana Splits. Love the adult swim toons too - always been a Brak fan, since the days of Cartoon Planet on TBS.

Ok ok ok, you need to change the topic, it's not a program, it's a totally different channel. Just to clear that up, so no one gets all comfy and turns it on to see that Japanese Anime crap.

'Witchiepoo'? I thought she was H.R.Puff'n'stuffs nemesis? If the Bananna Splits creators were on acid, what mind altering substances were the creators of H.R' under the influence of?
